The Hidden Treasure of Our Ancestors

 

 

 

 


The Golden Key to the Perfect Organization of Life

To build a bridge between our shadowlike present language, which distinguishes only between light and dark, and the colourful world of musical description is our challenge, self-imposed, as well as set by our ancestors.
And to accomplish this task is the fulfilling achievement of our individual self-realization.


"There is nothing higher than
to come closer than others
to the divinity and from here
to spread the rays of divinity among the human race."

Beethoven

 

Here, in the self-knowledge, lies the hidden treasure which our ancestors used so magically and powerfully and which we today, after a long period of cultural disintegration, discover again.

Everyone has self-awareness, understanding, feeling, and the power of discrimination. Everyone thinks, hears, feels, sees, tastes, and smells.
In all great eras, one's personal mastery over the inner-human powers was the golden key for the fulfilling, successful, and colourful organization of life. The message of music bears witness of this, and inspires us to assume this inner rulership again: to harmonize our individual, social, and ecological life.

Here also lies the eternal task of the musician. And when he enters this sphere of the harmony and learns how to rule it and how to create and form in it, he has unravelled the eternal mystery of the reality of music for himself and for others.

"Art! Who understands her? With whom can one speak about this great goddess?"

Beethoven
